My students love when we learn about digraphs because it makes them feel like “big kids” to say they know what a digraph is! Plus, it really opens up the door to reading so many new words. Another thing my students love is puzzle activities! These free Printable Heart Digraph Puzzles are perfect for working on beginning digraph sounds sh, ch, th, and wh with early readers!
*Pair with our Valentine’s Day Centers & Activities for Pre-K & Kindergarten!
Printable Heart Digraph Puzzles
These heart digraph puzzles strengthen digraph reading skills in an interactive and engaging way. They will be so popular with your students! Plus, in addition to being super fun, they are easy to prep.
Ways to Use the Puzzles in the Classroom
In my classroom, I start by introducing these digraph puzzles in our small groups as we review common digraphs together. Then I place them in our literacy centers for my students to work on independently.
These puzzles are also great for partner work or even as a quick, grab-and-go activity for early finishers – there are just so many possibilities!

If using this activity as an independent literacy center, easily make it self-correcting by writing the correct beginning digraph on the back of the picture half of the heart.
Students pair up the heart halves, turn them over, and check their work to see if they are correct!
However you use these adorable digraph puzzles, they are sure to add tons of seasonal Valentine’s Day fun to your classroom!
